Carla Bailo, the new president and CEO of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich., says the organization has a fast-growing array of new topics to pursue.

CAR will continue to conduct nonprofit research in three broad areas: transportation systems analysis; industry labor and economics; and manufacturing, engineering and technology.

But Bailo notes that powerful new trends are at work in each category. She cites advanced mobility, multi-lateral trade, smart cities, additive (3D) manufacturing and smart factories. She also points out that the economic and societal effects of these trends are still relatively unknown.​​
